Abstract:

A phased program is identified to direct research and development efforts to a determine if the use of antimisting fuel is feasible b develop recommendations as to its introduction and use in civil aviation operations and c demonstrate its effectiveness in a crash instance, and d assess the economic reasonableness in support of regulatory actions. The basic program utilizes an existing high molecular weight polymer additive dissolved in kerosene using a carrier fluid as a representative agent to prove the concept of uses of such fuels. Parallel to this main effort are investigations to identify other potentially acceptable fuels. Estimated funding and proposed scheduling are included. Author
